MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. Mount Vernon firefighter Ivory Green said that he got some positive news from a woman in Richmond, Va. who said that his missing son looked familiar.
Greens son, Michael Leslie Green, was reported missing on Dec. 18, 2009 while a college student at Virginia State University in Petersburg, Va. Green said that his sons roommate told him that his son was not feeling well the night before and went to sleep. By the morning, he was gone.
Green, also a minister at Allen Memorial Church of God in Mount Vernon, appeared before the City Council earlier this month with his congregation to bring attention to his missing son. Green said he received a phone call from the police in Petersburg asking his permission to put his sons picture and information on a missing persons website. Michael Leslie Greens photo was also posted on a Facebook group, and a woman in Richmond said he looked familiar.
It was kind of positive, Green said. It was one of those deals where friends sent pictures out to friends and we got a response. Im going to do my homework and see what happens. We have nothing else concrete right now but that was a big help.
Green said that he is looking for more exposure across the region to find his son. Green said that, in conjunctiion with his fire department and his church, he is are planning to go down to Virginia sometime in September.
The church is giving us support and prayers, Green said. We are hoping with prayers and moral support that we find him but we dont know what to expect.
